Hello Baby - Week 26

How far along: 26 weeks! 
Gender: BOY!!
Weight gain:  I'm not too sure right now.. probably 8-9lbs  
Maternity clothes: Although most people would probably not even notice, my belly is starting to pop! I am starting to actually look pregnant although I am sure a lot of people think is she pregnant or just chubby. I still feel like I am in that awkward looking stage, just about to hit the "okay she is pregnant" stage. haha I'm enjoying the smaller belly while it lasts. Especially while I'm working, bending and pulling and doing all kinds of stuff. 
Stretch marks: Same old stuff. 
Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: Sleep is going alright. I fall asleep quickly and want to sleep a lot. However. I have a ton of WEIRD dreams and end up waking up/ feeling a lot more restless these days. I usually have to pee once in the middle of the night but other than that I just wake up feeling achy so I change positions and fall right back asleep. I am actually pretty scared of the lack of sleep I will get once baby gets here. I really like my sleep. 
Best moment this week: Is it weird that I actually loved getting the house clean on Saturday? I feel pretty lame saying that was a great moment of the week but I felt so productive and relaxed afterwords. We were able to just stay in and watch football and basketball and eat pizza. It was one of those nights that was great just doing nothing. On Friday night we went to dinner and a movie which was just what the doctor ordered after such an exhausting week for both of us! We saw Interstellar. It left our minds blown and with so much insight and ideas. I was nervous at first about sitting through a 2 and a half hour movie but it wasn't too bad. 
Miss anything: No back pain.. I'm pretty sure this would be my answer every week if I didn't want to be so boring. It really sucks. especially this week. 
Movement: He is moving and grooving all up in there. I feel like certain positions I lay or sit in, really get him moving. And I notice when I eat how much he likes it. When I wake up in the morning he has started to really move and let me know that it is time to eat. (whenever I get to sleep in that is usually what gets me out of bed, foooood) 
Cravings: How many times a week is it okay to eat Mexican? I'm pretty sure I could have it every day. Broccoli Cheese soup from Panera has sounded amazing lately.. but I don't know if that is the freezing cold weather talking or the baby. 
Queasy or sick: Just lots and lots of acid reflux. every single night. like right now. I need to take a pill. I usually take one every night and it works like magic but I think I need to start taking it at lunchtime. My back was bad this week. I think I had a rib go out because it was my upper back causing all the problem. I think it is better now. Usually when I go to work I find out what body part is going to bug me that week so we will see how it goes tomorrow. As for my lower back still stretching and I started putting Doterra oil on it and it seems to be helping a lot! Why I didn't think of this earlier I do not know! 
Looking forward to: Thanksgiving... or better yet Wednesday the 26 at 2pm. I will have worked 3 days in a row and I am almost positive it will be really rough on my body, soooo I might be realllllly dreading it. and I am really excited to go to St. George and have warmer(?) weather... haha I'm already done with the cold winter, I'm screwed. 

hello cute belly. 
This week all I want to do is plan, clean and make things or dream of making things for baby. Is that nesting? I feel like it is and I am allllll for it. I haven't really gotten much done for when baby comes and I am pretty okay with that most of the time. But then those moments come where I want to do EVERYTHING! There are so many things I want to make and then there is the extra bedroom and that is FULL of all things sewing and crafting... I should probably make some room for baby. I'm not too worried about the stuff we need to get for baby because I feel that will all come with time, however I do feel a little stress about getting a car seat since you need that to be allowed to bring the baby home! If you have any recommendations for a good car seat or stroller let me know. I have researched a lot but I also want a good deal! I'm all about those good deals. I am scouting all the Black Friday deals these days. If you know of any good baby ones, send them my way!

Keep growing strong little man. 
love, alex
